Vintage & Viticulture
2015 came in with some unusually and at times brutally cold weather. By April/May the weather normalized and June gave us plenty of rain. The growing season gave us hope with sunny warm weather which ran into harvest time. This allowed us to get good maturation of fruit and the silver lining of the cold winter, less fruit, which meant higher quality.
First edition of our River Road Cabernet. Blend consists of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20 % Cabernet Franc. Wines were fermented separately and blended after complete malolactic fermentation. Wine was crafted to maintain a fresh fruit profile hence no oak aging.
Aromas of red and blackberry fruit. On the palate, raspberries, cherries, sweet black berry fruit and a touch of cassis with subtle spice notes.
Enjoy with beef or homemade lasagna and hamburgers.
